Where the runway meets the street

Winter is not even close to ending soon, yet we already notice the days getting longer again – bit by bit. Yes, even after weeks of grey winter dreariness, the sun celebrated a much anticipated comeback, giving us a first glimpse of all the spring goodness to come. We used this as an opportunity to once again roam our favourite shops for a selection colourful sneakers, to ring in the upcoming warm season appropriately. See them after the jump.

Reebok x Keith Haring – Classic Leather Mid Strap Lux

Keith Haring was never one to shy away from monetising his work, earning him a reputation oscilaing between genius businessman and sellout artist pretty early in his career. Even almost a quarter of a century after his way too early death his art hasn’t lost any of its initial commercial appeal, resulting in a number of more or less interesting collabs in recent times. The latestone comes from Reebok, who reworked their classic high top silhouette with Haring’s distinctive artwork. They are now available at SneakernStuff


Nike – Dunk High AC NRG/BL

The scaled-back Nike Dunk High AC is now available in a sweet colourblocked Quickstrike edition. Crafted from a premium suede upper, the shoes features a white leather swoosh on top of white midsole. It is now available in limited quantities from Hanon.


Nike – Air Max 90 Medium Grey, Metallic Silver & Black

Not too flashy not too bleak, this version of the classic Nike Air Max 90 comes in a well balanced colourway, that sees spots of yellow, violet and silver standing out on a grey and black background. Definitely a great transitional piece to reintroduce some colour to your wardrobe. Score a pair over at End.
